of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> we go now to washington, d.c., where we're joined by two other protesters who were arrested yesterday outside the white house. michael brune is executive director of this year club. his most recent book is called, "coming clean: breaking america's addiction to oil and coal." and we're joined by daryl hannah, the actress and activist who previously was arrested in texas in october for protesting the keystone xl pipeline. we welcome you both to "democracy now!" michael brune, this is historic for your organization. in his 120-year history, you are the first leader of the organization to get arrested in civil disobedience. why? >> first, thank you for having me on the show. it may be surprising that an organization like the sierra club that has been around for so long and a part of so many important fights that we have civil disobedience. but we look at the tar sands pipeline project and it is a boondoggle, such a climate disaster that we realized we have to use every single tool of democracy in order to fight
wouldn't they? this is a project that provides energy to our country when we very much need it. it's a project that will provide jobs, tens of thousands of jobs. we have 7.9% unemployment. we have 12 million people out of work. here's a project that won't cost the federal government one single penny but it creates tens of thousands of high-quality private-sector jobs. it's about economic growth. this is a $7.9 billion project. the project over its life will create hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue for state and local government as well as the federal government to help with our deficit and our debt without raising taxes. more tax revenue without raising taxes. and it's also about our energy security, energy security for america. instead of bringing in oil from the middle east, this is about working with our closest friend and ally, canada, to meet our energy needs. this pipeline will not only bring in canadian oil, however, it will also -- it also moves oil from my state of north dakota and from the state of montana to our refineries in places like texas and louisiana
. >> thank you. >> coming up, president obama put climate change and energy reform front and center during the state of the union speech, but marco, i'm not a scientist rubio mostly dismissed this in his response. we'll discuss just ahead. hello! how sharp is your business security? can it help protect your people and property, while keeping out threats to your operations? it's not working! yes it is. welcome to tyco integrated security. with world-class monitoring centers and thousands of qualified technicians. we've got a personal passion to help your business run safer, smarter, and sharper. we are tyco integrated security. and we are sharper. how dowe get doing...olished room and make it shine? ...with a store full of ways to get it done. we can all throw on our work clothes... ...and throw out any doubt. because right now's the time to take those rooms from... ..."think i can do this?" to... ..."let me show you what i just did." more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. outsmart your budget with this shaker vanity, a special buy at just $199. she was a picky eater.
government, everything, everything, post office, roads, transportation, justice, education, energy, defense, everything else is about $1 trillion. you all just heard what the deficit was last year. $1.3 trillion. which means we can do away with the entire federal government with the exception of medicare, medicaid and social security and we wouldn't even balance the budget. that's the magnitude of the challenge that we have. so it's incumbent upon us to come up with solutions, positive solutions. so what are we trying to do on the house republican side? our goals as we step back and look and try to focus on what the goals ought to be are to increase economic freedom, to provide economic greater opportunity for individuals, to balance the budget within a 10-year period of time so that we can create that economic vitality in this country and create jobs and pass off that wonderful great land of opportunity to our kids and our grandkids so that their dreams can be realized and not stifled. along those lines we've laid out a three to four honor month strategy that started a couple weeks ago whe
there was a big movement that helped us win elections. there's a lot of energy that still comes from the tea party. while they consider themselves mostly to be republican, they will chastise the republican establishment. i see it as an extra response, not necessarily divisive. i won't say anything that is like marco rubio is wrong. he and i don't always agree but this isn't about he and i. this is about the tea party which is a grassroots movement, a real movement with millions of americans. cenk: well why do they get an extra response? how about our response. if i were obama here's the progressive state of the union speech i would give. i'd say first of all we're not doing austerity. instead, we're going to do stimulus. now the republicans would say you can't do stimulus. i'd say oh, yeah? stop me. i think the number one issue is jobs. i think the american people totally agrees with me. you want to stop me from creating jobs by doing stimulus? have at it. i'll see you in 2014. you don't want to do immigration reform on my terms? i'll see you in 2014. they just lost 21% of latino voters to presid
there are very near fulfillment. >> well, look, china supplies 90% or more, 90% or more of north korea's energy. supplies substantial amounts of food and other humanitarian aid. there is simply no doubt china could change what it acknowledges is a real component of instability in northeast asia, and that is a nuclear program. what they are afraid of is that the regime in north korea is so weak that if they applied pressure it will collapse and the peninsula will be reunified under american control. i think we can talk to the chinese about why it is ultimately in their interest to get to a point that will happen someday and make it something that they can live with when career reifies. we had started talking to china two years ago we would be a lot closer. lou: i don't know if they do this in diplomatic circles, but it just doesn't work. >> never too late to start because right now number three is on the verge of being able to sell that nuclear weapons capability in the work. lou: let me raise my hand, and i understand that, but it still doesn't work, not even in diplomacy or foreign policy. wha

of energy and emotion around the issue of guns as we now see them. this was the month, the president was talking about the violence in chicago and other victims around the country as he called for a vote. this is what he said. >> hadiya's parents, nate and cleo, are in the chamber tonight, along with more than two dozen americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. they deserve a vote. gabby giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. >> talk about that moment. gabby obviously has been back in the chamber on numerous occasion but this was emotion. >> certainly the point of the speech there was the most energy in the chamber, not only from the gallery but the floor as well. i think that resonates throughout the country. i think people are demanding that something be done about this gun violence. we can't continue and do nothing when we have 20 first graders die in their classrooms. >> you have an incredible amount of moment tim. mike bloomberg, mayor bloomberg, on of th
or in the white house briefing papers. subsidies, more subsidies for wind, solar and wind thermal energy. ee research for biofuel and natural gas cars. redesign america's high schools. a new foreign aid initiative. research for brain disease and clean energy and universal preschool. these are expensive. the last one alone the president's favorite liberal think tank the centerrer for american progress issued a proposal a few days ago foreshadowing the president's mention of it in his state of the union and said it would cost $25 billion a year when fully operated. we are talking about a hundred billion dollars a year in additional spending if the president's proposals are enacted and we are at deficit, we don't have the money for it. the question is, can we afford it as a country? jon: you heard with regard to that universal pre daycare kind of thing, universal pre kindergarten thing of thing the president said that forever dollar you spend on that kind of a program you get something like $14 back. >> that's how we justify everything. the president justified the stimulus by saying if we spent
a little credit. >> tom:, will is a lot of questions about the energy efficiency system in new orleans. this caughter doesn't understand why sequestration is such a problem. >> tom: i am, too. you didn't buy that for a 2nd. tax increase on the rich was going to solve anything. thanks to everyone that contacted us this week. we are open for business 24/7. check out our facebook page and you can like me there. weird way of saying it but you can like me at my facebook.com sullivan show. follow me on sul very van radio and all of the ways to contact me is on my main web page. we're on many local radio stations around the country. we'll have another great tv show for you next week right here on fox business. in the meantime, i hope to hear daddy. you have got to stop. that is my $0.2. have a great weekend. >> good evening, we are now looking at pictures of a live shot of boston expected to be the epicenter of the blizzard hitting this our most bracing for the effect of the potentially deadly blizzard some areas expecting 3 feet of snow we will have full coverage. among the stories vice pres
after $600 million in taxpayer money has already arguably been wasted on investments in green energy companies the white house, did you catch this part, they're now going to put 2 billion more of your taxpayer dollars into green energy programs. will they work? is that a nice valentines gift for the taxpayer? ♪ . bill: gatorade alert. that's a new one. freeway in los angeles here. fontana, california, actually. apparently a semi-truck carrying a load of gatorade has spilled its contents. all the traffic in the eastbound lane have been shut down except for the high speed lane. this is gatorade of a different kind of shower than you see an nfl coach getting after he wins the super bowl. now the gatorade's all over the freeway there. soda cans included. there is a massive cleanup operation underway. martha: wonder if it is the red kind or the green kind or the blue kind or the g2 or what gatorade specifically? i am tradition all in everything. i like the green yellow one, traditional version. >>> how about this story? you heard of sleep walking and sleep driving and sleep eating occur
country. he is doing what he has to do. i am all for his proposals, all for clean energy and comprehensive immigration, i am for gun legislation. i am for all of them. i am center-left, that is progressive. i think the country is definitely going progressive. i do not understand where the republicans want to obstruct and go with their small mindedness and small government proposals that they think that they can push through on the american people that i do not think are very popular. host: we have a different opinion from twitter. host: david wright's in on twitter and says -- host: dan is up next in california, republican. caller: hello. i would like to reiterate what was just said. i am a retired federal employees. executive orders used to come few and far between. this president is misusing them to an extreme degree. as the lady put it a little bit ago, executive orders are not meant for executive fiat of anything the president dreams. he is going to ruin the balance of power in this country if he keeps it up. i think he should be impeached for what he has done. host: what you think of
of you also served on. i completed my career here as chairman of the senate energy and natural resources committee. i will say to senator bennett, you may not think you are getting old, but clearly i am. i remember we have a bennett who was chief of staff of the budget committee. i was very young and at the bottom chair. he had the same name you do. it was your father. what a terrific thing to come here and see you today and ask .'s this. -- and expenses. -- and experience this. over 50% of the federal budget should put the country fiscal path for the future. this committee will play a critical role in achieving that role working with the president and with the secretary of the treasury. as you confront the fiscal challenges ahead, i cannot think of anyone more qualified or more ready for this job than jack lew. in only understands the challenges our country faces, but has the experience and judgment to confront them. as many know, jack has been a dedicated servant for many years. a servant of the people. what many do not know is where the dedication that she has originated -- that he ha
advisers, gene sperling, this morning what the president would say about energy. for example, would he announce his support for the keystone pipeline? here's what sperling said. >> the president thinks that energy is a critical part of our economic future, and he will certainly talk about that, and he'll talk about that in many ways but most specifically on the importance of what that can mean not just for our energy security, but for our economic security and for jobs and innovation in our economy. >> reporter: so i didn't get an answer, obviously. [laughter] now, on the question of spending cuts and how serious the president would get about proposing those, speaker boehner told reporters this morning, quote: >> r eporter: and by the way, the senate democratic leader, harry reid, said that he would have his first meeting in quite a while with speaker boehner later this week. david and liz? david: all right. well, you asked the right question. it wasn't for want of trying that you didn't get an answer of some kind. thank you, peter. we'll see more of you tonight. and tonight it all beg
communities for climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> reporter: it will run from canada to the gulf coast. they claim the extrapgz of oil from tar sands generates more greenhouse casses. they said the president has gone part way but they want more. >> now we want him to do the next thing, say no to the keystone pipeline and say yes to cutting carbon from existing power plants. >> reporter: the keystone pipe line will be a difficult decision for the barack obama administration. and, of course, there is no room in that decision for compromise. reporting live in san francisco, kpix-5. >>> investigators are trying to figure out who is at fault in a crash between a motorboat and a golden gate ferry. it happened yesterday afternoon in raccoon strait. kpix-5 found people in the community not surprised by the accident. >> reporter: the ferries are running again after an accident that left a lot of people wondering -- >> how did this happen? >> investigators are trying to figure that out and people were hurt after
are. the national debate on climate change and energy takes center stage on this president's day. thousands of demonstrators marched in d.c. this weekend calling for president obama take action on global warming. they want a carbon tax and they want the president to block that keystone pipeline. the demonstrators formed a human pipeline that went from the national mall to the white house. the protest was billed as the biggest ever climate demonstration in american history. organizers estimated the organizers they say 35,000 people showed up to protest. and more are expected today as well. it is monday morning, president's day. we have our company for you all ready to go, look at them, elizabeth macdonald is here and charles payne of course is here. first, both of you, your reaction to the climate change demonstrations in washington. go. liz: listen, the unions are for the keystone pipeline. afl-cio building and construction division wants it. the entire federation may be in full support of this. but this runs counter to what the president has said that he wants to do something ab
of the core ideas that the president laid out, it was a very nice speech and of course, the emotional energy being undone, you wonder if any of it can happen. >> john: even if they don't happen, are these wins for the president. if he fails on assault weapons and has a future massacre, you own this. problems on minimum wage, he looks good going into 2014, people will remember the president who fought for the working class? >> winning for him now is different. he's in a second termen where historical analysis and historical perspective is what he cares about. he's not fighting for re-election. he needs results after eight years so he can say here's what we got done. i still think the fundamental metric will be middle class incomes after eight years of president obama be up or down. if its adown then i think the historical record will be yes he brought us back from the precipice but somehow did not restore the trend line. that was the focus of what he was talking about. whether the pieces are there whether it happens, we have to wait and see. >> john: i want to move on to mr. lapierrre. i know
things and all of them will stress the economic context. energy. infrastructure, which is new roads and bridges and things like that. manufacturing. and education and making colleges more affordable. and how we to make our economy grows stronger and promotes and grow the middle class. host: is the headline in the financial times -- how much of this will echo what we heard at the inaugural address? guest: i think it will be a little different from that. there were many comments after the inaugural address. it was very aggressive. he talked about gave rights, equal pay for women, voting rights. i think you'll see some of that, but my sense is you will see all of those pins that can come into an economic context. while he might talk about immigration, what we need to do as a country as that, it will be in the vein of how do we help the economy? host: jonathan strong? guest: i was at a retreat that the house democrats held last week in virginia. the president gave a speech to them in a preview of what he was going to say. ito quite an aggressive tone in terms of the standoff with republ

, clean energy, a whole host of these things. those proposals deserve a boat. that is what we want to see. the contrast of marco rubio giving a personal speech directed not at the country but very personally at the president, i think, is a huge missed opportunity for the republican party. they have to do something differently, or they will continue to lose national elections. >> whether or not you like republican policy ideas or vice versa, but contrast of the president talking and marco rubio talking about the president did not serve him well. >> at the end of the speech, again, it was almost as if it was two different speeches. rubio wants to take it big, let's come together and work on these things together. is this the same guy that was just basically blaming the president for everything, including bad weather? it just seemed very, very -- it will be seen as very off-putting to the people that live in this country and decide elections. it huge missed opportunity. >> thank you. pleasure to have you here tonight. >> thank you. >> i think rubio -- it sounds primitive as well -- to the ca
with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. ♪ make it worth watching. ♪ the new 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. >>> president obama's about to wrap up a trip to florida that's been shrouded in secrecy. today, cnn did obtain these exclusive faraway pictures of the president out there on the golf curiouourse. we've seen nothing of his round of golf, though, with tiger woods. brian todd joining us now. why all the secrecy, why is the white house not letting ph
storm that is strengthening, it it will pull in the energy of the other system they will get together to see a rapid strengthening to see the snowfall rates really increase. yellow and red is heavy rainfall -- rainfall but then will be a snowfall with the band that will be the heaviest, notice this break with new jersey and new york there is heavy snow to come back and within the next hour we will fill this id and will become also no. very cold into tomorrow and that slush on the ground is freezing with snow on top of it. by tomorrow afternoon everybody here cold temperatures, of windy and cold night tomorrow with a long stretch to see bad travel conditions, a sunday is a better -- better day and monday will help a little bit with 40 degrees. lou: and already looks better behind you. any adjustments of snowfall? >> all along the on the big question is toward the york city some 30 inches we are right on that line so york will get another seven or 8 inches but we will see those individual areas with the b3 feet totals. lou: that is a lot of snow we will keep updated on the wicked whethe

. what can he get passed in the united states senate? the president wants to propose an energy tax. the president wants more stimulus spending, there will be no -- doesn't create jobs. i would expect the united states senate to go ahead and take it up. if the president wants more tax hikes that destroy jobs, then as democrat allies in the senate ought to take it up. this isn't the agenda that many americans are looking for, and i think many in the president's own party won't support those ideas. in the house we're going to continue to focus on what the american people's top priorities are -- creating jobs and cutting spending. for the last two years the house has done its work. we've passed legislation to tackle the tough challenges that america faces only to see our senate colleagues do nothing. well, those days are over. the house will continue to meet other obligations, but senate democrats must begin to do their work. that's why we passed the no budget no pay act, requiring the senate to pass a budget for the first time in four years. and that's why we're going to insist that t
forms of energy, which is good for the environment. >> rose: a carbon tax. >> some form of carbon tax, federal gas tax is going up a bit. something like that. you can get another few hundred billion a year out of that. that gets you up to 3.5. the last trillion is where the rubber meets the road. i think all of that, maybe dems and republicans wouldn't automatically admit they would be willing to do it but all of that is within the realm of reason. the last trillion is the hard part. because then you're making very tough choices about which specific taxes to raise versus which specific spending cuts. >> rose: what choices would you recommend the country make. >> in my opinion and i do work some with the congressional budget office, although they are nonpartisan, this is just my opinion. i would make four or five big choices. i would, indeed, put up some sort of carbon tax. and for the sake of call all of us and future generation. >> rose: the congress went crazy over cap and trade. >> cap and trade is a crazy thing to doment but also, also, frankly, the world has changed. i mean it's
in manufacturing and energy, better roads and bridges and schools. we've got to make sure hard work is rewarded with a wage that you can live on, to raise a family on. we need to make sure that we've got shared responsibility for giving every american the chance to earn the skills and education that they need for a really competitive, fwloebl job market. as i said on tuesday night, that education has to start at the earliest possible age, and that's what you have realized here in decatur. study after study. >> the kids we saw today that i had a chance to spend time with in mary's classroom, they're some of the lucky ones. fewer than three in ten 4-year-olds are in -- most middle class students can't afford private preschool at a few hundred bucks a week. for the poor children that need it the most the lack of access to a great preschool education can have an impact on their entire lives. we ail pay a price for that. this is not speculation. study after study shows the achievement gap starts off very young. kids who when they go in to kindergarten, their first day if they already have a lot fewe
